Say what you will about "molecular gastronomy," but you have to give it up to a restaurant that takes an iconic dish like eggs Benedict and reintroduces it to the plate as egg yolk cylinders with crispy cubes of molten hollandaise with dehydrated bacon. It's so pretty that you almost don't want to attack it with your fork — almost. Wylie Dufresne continues to prove himself one of our country's most imaginative and technically accomplished chefs, and a recent menu revamp that eliminated the à la carte option didn’t affect the restaurant's reputation in the least.  — Maryse Chevriere
